Error on installing VS2008

Recommended Posts

On both the FS9 and FSX updates, I get a message that there is a problem installing VS2008 and the installer must quit. So, I don't know whether or not my updates have been successfully installed. When attempting to run the FS9 version, the PMDG navdata loads extremely slowly compared to the previous version. But, the cockpit looks normal after everything finally loads. I have not tried the FSX version yet.I would appreciate some guidance from PMDG on the VS2008 problem.Thanks.

More information...Neither of the load managers work. The message is that a valid FS installation cannot be found or there is a configuration problem.When trying the run the updated FSX version, everything appears to load all right but all of the cockpit gauges are totally black.Running FS9 and FSX with Windows XP Pro.Thanks.

Even though I received no comments on this post, I would like to report that the problem has been solved. The shw95.dll file supporting my Kensington trackball was apparently interfering with the installer. When I disabled the file using "msconfig" and restarted, the update installation proceeded correctly and all appears to be in working order. Enabling the trackball file after installation did not cause any problems.
